    Backhand Drive

    Suzette starts her throw with a traditional X-step. Her first step is pointed away from the target and she begins her hip and shoulder rotation early.

    Suzette continues forward with a quick cross-step and her body is now rotated away from the target.

    At Suzette's point of maximum reach back, her hips and shoulders are rotated fully away from the target and she uses her off arm to aid in rotation. Here Suzette has her weight over her back foot and is ready to push off into the plant/pivot. Here she has the disc oriented in the nose down position.

    Suzette has planted her foot ~90 degrees from the target and has begun her hip and shoulder rotation open as her weight shifts forward. Suzette has started her pull on a straight line and has her off arm up and out of the way.
